Duh Nail Polish Lucky Me, Lucky You Trio Swatch and Review
**Gifted to Me**
Hello my loves and let me first off by saying Happy St. Patricks Day!! I hope your wearing your green today so you don't get pinched;). Second, I'de like to apologize in my lack of posting. My fibromyalgia has been acting up really crazy and I've had more bad days then good, then I spent a few days in the hospital with my oldest son who came down with a nasty virus. But, out of all of that I am back and with a great post might I add!
First, I'de like to talk about Danyl, the creator of Duh Nail Polish. I made a purchase on her etsy after seeing a few of her polishes on instagram. I would say, no more than 10 minutes after making my purchase, she emailed me saying she had ran a sale on Instagram and she known I hadn't seen it so offered to refund me the money, or add another polish. I told her to go ahead and surprise me with whichever polish she chose. Well, on top of the extra polish she sent me, she also sent me this trio. She was so sweet in keeping me up to date on where my order was. Now that my friends, is quality indie at it's finest. Now, I know that not every indie seller has it in their budget to send free samples with every order, totally understandable. But the fact that she came to ME about the sale she had just ran, speaks a million words. So thank you, Danyl, for being so kind.
First in line, we have Not Irish, Kiss Me Anyway. This is a beautiful white crelly polish packed with rainbow shimmer, green hexes and pink dots.
I used two thin coats of Not Irish, Kiss Me Anyway over one coat of Sinful Colors Snow Me White, followed by HK Girl Topcoat.
The formula on this was beautiful. No glooping or sticking of the glitters, it all laid out nicely. One dip of the brush and I was able to get enough glitters so as not to fish.
I think this would be great any time of year, not just for the season of St. Patrick's Day. Very spring like!
Next up, we have Gettin' Lucky. This is a green cream with gold and green shimmer. The shimmer in this one is very subtle but close up you can see it nicely.
This is three thin-medium coats followed by HK Girl Topcoat.
Let's talk about formula. The formula on this one was a little tricky. For my liking, I did add a small drop of thinner to it. It wasn't super thick right out of the bottle, but definitely too thick for me. Nothing that would have steered me away from buying though.
Again, another great one for spring, I really love the hidden shimmer in this.
Lastly, but certainly not least, we have End of the Rainbow. It is a gold glitter topper, with gold hexes and dots, packed with loads of purple-pink shimmer.
I layered one coat of End of the Rainbow, over Gettin' Lucky. Followed by HK Girl Topcoat.
The formula on this was outstanding! I was thinking I'de have trouble getting the glitters to stay in place because of how packed the glitters were, but no problem here!
And there you have it folks! I loved every part of this collection and I am so happy it is in my clutches! End of the Rainbow is one of my favorite glitter toppers that I have in my stash to date.
